[Rocks Off asked local music photographess supreme and Mutant Hardcore Flower Hour co-host Rosa Guerrero if she'd be willing to periodically open up her vast archives for our readers' enjoyment, and she graciously agreed. Here are her first submissions.]
"The Secret Prostitutes perform at a warehouse on Commerce Street: This show was busted up by the cops pretty early on. Pity. It was a beautiful, cold, clear October night. They are performing tonight at Boondocks."
"From the Southmore House Series - 'Double Decker Circle Pit': I was using a short lens and was nearly wiped out taking this photograph. Nikon FA, 24 mm lens, a flash and a prayer."
"Todo Moto Motorcycle Club members: This was taken earlier this year on Leeland Street, just east of downtown."
"El Desmadre live on the Mutant Hardcore Flower Hour, KTRU 91.7 FM: El Desmadre played live on Rice Radio. They turned alot of heads when they were loading in, I remember that well. I used cheap consumer black-and-white film that you can get at any drugstore. Contrasty but good if you need quick turnaround." - Rosa Guerrero
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
